  15. You made me feel seen when I was just a wee plyg kid with wee braids. Your eyes sparkled like blue diamonds when you would see me. It took me a while to truly believe you were smiling at me. That you hadn’t mistaken me for someone …more…more lovable…more worthy of that sparkle that burst from your eyes. It lit my little light inside. You were my first experience of believing I was…more … because if someone as crazy vibrant and soul shouting loud as you – could see more in me … well then it must be true. You lit my light Mamma Linda, I’m so incredibly privileged to have known your unmistakable sparkle ✨
